Calliope, My Muse

Was once inspired, but now too tired
To search for more expressive ways
To convey my Heart's inert Desires-
The place where my Ideas played

I beg of thee, sweet Calliope,
To fill my Mind with budding Prose
But I am touched by Melpomene-
In freezing Fires, thus reposed

My outlook dreary, I have a theory-
That I shall stay forever weary
And I see it, Oh! Quite clearly
That I shall miss them all so dearly!

My Muses Mute; But Atropos
The Fate that begged for one more post
With her Shears shorn ev'ry fear
That I might write as just a Ghost

    This is great, and I congratulate you. She put up a blog to only give the advice to her directly, so I went and withdrew my poem from her contest. Man, I wish I had left it in now that I am seeing all the winners how they did theirs!!

    I just took a gamble that the host would relate; it doesn't always pay, but I figure what the heck, you know? I'll give it a try :)

    Yeah, I really enjoyed the tinge of exhaustion u added.- and the style in which you wrote is one I enjoy.

    An impeccable rhythm and rhyming scheme you used here. Except for the last stanza which seems to drift away a little from the scheme. But most truly excellent work friend.

    Thanks as always, my friend. This one got away from me; it's longer than my usual fare. I was a little all over the place in this piece, and it definitely needs some revising ;)

    Thanks, Karen; I can't help myself: I love Greek mythological references ;)
